Added Our New House to Google Maps - All the Easier for Stalkers to Find Me!

Isn't it funny how that's exciting to me?  I got to tag an address into Google!  One that was not there before!  I know there is no house there officially, but I wanted to make sure I was the one to do it.  This is probably the only time in my life I get to do such a thing.  Am I the only crazy, obsessive person here to do this?
We have a bubble marker for our address!  Next stop - hopefully a structure! 
I think this might also be helpful for those wonderful After Close items we have to rush to get done for furniture deliveries, utilites, etc! The drivers will be able to find our house on a GPS/map! :)

If you haven't done it and want to do it, I've included the instructions below.  You'll be asked a bit of information and your e-mail address to verify your request - and voila - your bubble will appear and shortly after you'll get a notice that Google has approved your request and added the new address.

To edit Google Maps in Map Maker:
  1. Open
  2. Click the Edit in Map Maker button in the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Click Add New or Edit. Make your edits, then click Save when finished.


  1. Nice tutorial! Maybe you'll be present if/when the google maps people do a drive by with their huge orb camera contraption.

    I hate how our GPS won't have our address to use to "go home".

    1. I would love to see my house on google streetview! LOL.

  2. Perfect timing, we just got our address and I wanted to stare lovingly at our house online. Thanks for the tutorial.
